So for St. Patrick’s Day…
I always share my truth!
Here it goes—I’ve been teaching this in corporate America for over 20 years—and I still feel them roll their eyes when I start.
Ireland has three colors in their flag.
King William of Orange chose these colors to represent the following:
White—the hope and prayer that someday both could live at peace with one another!
And that’s why- on St. Patrick’s Day—Protestants are supposed to wear ORANGE, not GREEN!
But of course—EVERYONE wears Green!
I was trying to teach a 5 year old the reason why we wear Orange.
He got stuck on the word “Protestant!”
My 5 year old grandson Jett asked me “what’s a processtant?”
I repeated “protestant”
He replied “what the?”
He wasn’t getting it…
I know, I know…too young to understand.
But… he did dress up for the holiday!
In the spirit of true transparency—I must confess—
I bought him the GREEN hat that he is wearing—he wore it to school!
Hey…it was on clearance…
And I knew…
He wouldn’t know a ProcessStant from a Caterpillar! (that’s what he called the word Catholic!)
Maybe next year…
Just sign me…
